I’m back, from outer space! (or, from Alabama.)
So, about all that blogging I was planning on doing on the joys of costuming? Didn’t happen. For the last couple months, I’ve been so busy I barely had time to keep up with my email, much less my blog. But, I had a great time in spite of the stress and challenges, and most importantly, the show looked FANTASTIC. I know I am a bit biased, but the costumes were excellent and the cast looked gorgeous.
And now, life is back to normal.
Which means that my Etsy shop is back to normal, too! Most importantly, my shipping schedule is back to normal. I have about a million new things to post, so check back here or at my store for the latest. Expect a major sale in the very near future, as well – it’s a little late for spring cleaning (at least in Florida, anyway), but I’m ready to clean house all the same! I will, of course, post all about it when the time comes.
I feel like I’m slowly reacquainting myself with the internet at large – I’ve had such limited time to keep myself informed about the fashion world and what’s going on in the realm of vintage clothes. Here are a few things that caught my eye of late:
Couture Allure’s 4 part series looking at the designs of Luis Estevez – so gorgeous:
1960 Part 1
1960 Part 2
1961 Part 1
1961 Part 2
The Sartorialist has been running a vintage photo contest, with some really stunning selections. They’re peppered throughout his blog, but check out some of my favorites:
“With the Boys”
“Alejandro & Mom”
Michelle Obama in Peter Soronen, on Mrs. O
She’s so pretty! Click the picture for the full link, with more shots of this beautiful ensemble.
The FIDM Museum Blog posted a great interview with Deborah Cook, costume designer for the animated film Coraline: read it here.
That’s all for now. I’m glad to be back! Don’t forget to check out my Etsy shop
